Prep and Villa brought Elton John and Tim Rice's show "Aida" to the stage this past weekend February 8th-11th. Over 70 talented students took the stage at Cathedral Prep's H. David Bowes Auditorium.
"Aida" is an ancient love story set to a modern pop-rock. The story is set during a war between Egypt and Nubia,and follows Nubian princess Aida, who hides her true identity after being captured and enslaved. But things get more complicated when Aida starts to fall for Radames, an Egyptian captain betrothed to the pharaoh's daughter, Amneris. As Aida and Radames' romance grows, they're forced to make a tough choice: follow their hearts or fulfill the duties expected of them.
Fr. Mike DeMartinis, directed the cast staring Alex Welz `18 (CP), Hannah Harvey `19 (VMA), and Valeria Camacho `18 (VMA).
The show brought in huge crowds and was enjoyed by all who attended. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew on a job well done!
